I'm not an art guy. Museums bore the bejesus out of me. But I would like to think I'd have some respect for the Mona Lisa, arguably one of the most famous paintings of all time. One crazy person did not show Ms. Lisa the respect she deserves, in this attack caught on someone's smartphone. The Louvre has not seen this much excitement since Scott beat up the robot mime in Eurotrip.
Maybe this is just nuts to me?but an man dressed as an old lady jumps out of a wheel chair and attempted to smash the bullet proof glass of the Mona Lisa. Then proceeds to smear cake on the glass, and throws roses everywhere all before being tackled by security. ???? pic.twitter.com/OFXdx9eWcM

Let's go through the plan. Some dude woke up in the morning and decided he really hated the Mona Lisa. He looked around his flat and saw a wheelchair, some birthday cake, and a wig from when he dressed up as one of the Spice Girls. "Hey, that's what I'll do!" he thought. "I'll pretend to be confined to a wheelchair so I can get up close, and when I get to the front, I'll smear cake on the Mona Lisa's smug, judgmental face. And dressing like a woman? It just feels right."
The only lingering question is why one man could be so angry at a painting that he'd go through the trouble of such performative outrage. It's as if maybe, just maybe, our assailant could have another motive. An ideology or political stance if you will...
“Think of the Earth! There are people who are destroying the Earth! Think about it. Artists tell you: think of the Earth. That’s why I did this.”
I'm sure everyone in attendance thought of the Earth. Then they thought about what an assclown this guy was.
